    I used to think there was no

    such thing as "reason", I always had a nietzche-like approach thinking we created our own outcomes...but the more I live the more I begin to see that sometimes people enter/exit our lives for very good reasons.

    I recenlty started university

    and i havent made friends yet, i feel very lonely but i believe that God wont send you to a place with no reason. I do put myself out there but its always in vain. My gender and race do put me down i guess, very proud to be black but others dont appreciate what i can offer.

    Do you think so? That there is a reason?

    And who will admit to it?. Why do people suddenly quit responding or ignore a question asked? Happens for a reason? ! Really?! Let me set a scenario that we have all had but never really sat and thought about it. Or maybe you did and went into a denial mode. So sitting here...

    If your life is not the way you want it,

    do not sit down and wait for changes. There is no one else but you that can change it.

    I have had people enter my life just

    when I needed them the most. I don't believe it happened by chance but more on the lines of it was "meant to be".

    I always say this to myself

    and also to other people who are going through a really hard time. If someone comes into your life there is always a reason for them, and if they leave well it doesn't mean that it's the end of the world, it just means that they are no longer apart of your story so their chapter...

    I am not so sure about that.

    I’ve heard people reason that bad things happen to open the door for something good to follow. Really? If there is a god or higher power, I don’t believe that he would be so cruel to bring bad things over our life paths so that good things can follow. Yes, surely if...

    I am blessed that i've been tested lately

    and always been testing because when Allah wants things to happen they happen such miraculously and everything falls into place so beautifully that it amazes you. It feels like a spiritual journey or in my case it really was for me.

    Knowing you can live without someone

    but not wanting to is the ultimate dilemma. Do you stay still due to a sense of safety, real or imagined? Do you leave, closing the door to a past that helped define you up until now? Change is something that is coveted by many but feared by everyone at the same time. How do...

    Yes, I believe everything happens

    for a reason. I got hated by a lot of people for being who I am, but in the long run, I discovered I am really better off without them in my life. So I now believe God always have better plans for us!

    I truly do. Everything is a part of

    who you are. Even people coming into your life or crossing paths. There can even be those rare people you meet and have an instant connection and very deep bond and feelings for very quickly. One person can alter and change your life for the better.

    Some things, I believe, that would have completely broke some people. However, I don't dwell on the past. I don't let these things define who I am, but instead, I accept what has happened and accept that everything happens for a reason. These things have helped me to grow into...

    Each human life has a number of trials to

    endure, Father Thomas assured me. We each have the propensity to deal with our personal trials, but some choose not to but are subsumed by what happens to them. He says prayer is essential, as is selflessness.
